The Banff International Hostel will abide by Alberta’s Restriction Exemption Program which will require all guests who are staying at the hostel to provide proof of vaccination or negative rapid test. This temporary government mandated program goes into effect on Monday, September 20th, 2021. In choosing this option we are able to keep our hostel at full capacity open, maintain as many amenities as possible for our guests and keep our staff working in a safe environment.
